Foods to never feed your dog

  • chocolate
  • onions
  • raisins
  • spices such as curry, paprika or cayenne pepper
  • garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • grape
  • walnuts
  • coffee
  • butter and dairy foods
  • corn

Only use a very small amount of oil if cooking meat.

If feeding leftovers, be mindful of what they contain – do they have butter or salt in them? If so, don’t use them.

Vege boost!

A wide range of vegetables can be fed to your dog, whether fresh or frozen, such as peas, carrots, potatoes, kumara, broccoli, green beans, pumpkin and spinach. If choosing canned vegetables, check they contain no salt.
